The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of objects that exchange data with other devices and systems over the internet. Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication has existed for a long time, but smart affordable sensors and improved connectivity in combination with cloud computing platforms and artificial intelligence have boosted the applications for IoT.
NORCE is mainly involved with industrial IoT, especially with respect to instrumentation and smart sensors with embedded signal processing and interaction with cloud technologies for advanced data analysis, visualization and automation. Typical applications for industrial IoT are Smart manufacturing (Industry 4.0), automated process control, preventive and predictive maintenance, smart transport and logistics, smart cities and energy systems.
NORCE have expertise on a wide range of IoT-related disciplines, and are currently involved in several projects where IoT is a significant part of the system design and innovation.
